  1. Aren’t these clues a little to vague to be helpful? Like a bagel for instance, there must be more than one in the picture, what if we find one, but it’s not the right one?

    And what is a “heated floor under construction” I’ve found at least five buildings with floors under construction, am I missing the point entirely?

  2. hi Isaac,

    if you (to give an example) find a flying bagel in the sky, while i was thinking of the giant bagel shaped house like this one,
    http://www.360cities.net/image/randy-s-donut
    that’s ok, both answers are valid.

    If you found lots of floors under construction, and we ask for a heated floor, that’s not vague, that’s specific, I think….

    good luck!

    1. Any other more helpful hints concerning the donut clue? It’s rather vague and if it’s a normal size donut it’s really hard to find. So should we be looking for a more abstract notion of donut?
      Thx

  4. are u sure that is the real donut, because i have found it too…but i think it’s to small to be that (i would expect a donut to be a bit larger)

    1. The one i found looks too big for a donut 😀 I guess even the roundabout looks like a donut so it might just count 😉 the heated floor construction logically sounds almost impossible to spot…anyway, good luck to everyone!

  6. OK then
    i have a couple of questions
    explain exterior nudity: is it a nude statue or a nude human person 🙂
    also the heated floor is a little bit confusing, can you just explain what is it exactly??

    Thanks

  7. The heated floor – another way to say it is underfloor heating…where the floor is warm.

    The bagel/donut – you’ll know it when you see it 🙂

  8. and the bagel/donut is supposed to be something resembling a backed or fried piece of food? and not just something round with a hole in the middle…like the “O” in O²?

  9. You people have waaaay too much time on your hands. I know Prague a little and so can find no.4 easily enough but haven’t found any of the rest so far. 😦

  10. WHY is this being done days before Xmas when a lot of us are busy with wrapping up business and shopping? January would have been much better. Just me.
    Found 5 items fairly quickly. The bus was the second one. Google is definitely your friend.

    HErnestM has a good point. Google is your friend. It will answer a lot more questions than I will 😉
